“Title Town Football puts fans in the front office of their own team, where they can improve facilities, sign and manage a roster of real players, and watch their franchise value skyrocket,” said Andy Kaplan, co-founder and CEO of Gasworks Games.“And, of course, players can also enjoy dominating their friends on game day!”

Title Town Football offers frenzied football fans a deep roster of gridiron gameplay:

    <*> Live the Life: Bring in fans and revenue as you perform the daily duties of a football exec, from public appearances to push-ups with your star defensive end. <*> Improve Facilities: Boost your franchise value and attract premium free agents by upgrading your Stadium, Training Facility, Front Office, and more. <*> Manage Superstars: Keep an eye on your salary cap as you sign real-life players to your team roster, then decide who starts and who sits on game day. <*> Purchase Exempt Contracts: Sign heavy hitters to exempt contracts. Keep high-salary players from counting against your salary cap, and get a leg up on the competition. <*> Show Off: Force your friends to recognize the real boss when you crush them on Sundays, earn a huge fan following, and turn your run-down compound into a world-class athletic facility.
Title Town Football is planned for an early September release, followed by additional fantasy sports titles in 2011.
